Spiritual Strategies For Winners

Jesus is the descendent who took away from the devil all power and authority over men. Jesus gave to those who believe in Him authority over all the power of the devil and He announced that nothing could harm them. God also promised it in Isaiah 54, 14-17, that anyone who will league against Abraham’s descendants will fall under their power and that any weapon forged against them will be null and void. He also says that any tongue that will rise against them, they will have authority to condemn it.
Jesus announced that the gates of Hell and death will not prevail against the church and its members. The devil remains the real enemy of men. Not only children of God, but of all men because he does not want the good of any man. He has no good project for men. But Jesus announced good news. The prince of this world, that is, the devil has been judged. God has repressed him. He no longer has authority over men. Jesus paid the price of man’s sin on the cross to have the right to save and free men from the power and dominion of the devil.
Spiritual Warfare is therefore a matter of faith, more than armed battle. Jesus is the main agent of this battle and he won it. Jesus is the winner of a battle that ended in death. A fight to death. In his body he bore the sin, the curse, the poverty, and all the sufferings of men until death. At the end of this fight, the victory was that of Jesus Christ and all who believe in Him.
By death Jesus triumphed over the one who has the power of death, having taken away all authority and all dominion by the cross. And on the third day Jesus triumphed over death, and returned to life gloriously to enter into his eternal glory.
Spiritual warfare is based on a victory already achieved and a glorious Lord who assures his victory to all who confess him as their Lord and savior.
There is a fight in the invisible world around us. There are beings around us, having various powers to oppose us, to challenge and oppress us incessantly. Their goal is to steal, kill and destroy. And they have no pity or laziness in their works. But the victory of the cross is an eternal solution for men to enjoy the victory of Christ over these beings.
Actually there is a fight, and the people opposite are spirits who have no physical bodies or blood but who are at work trying to destroy the benefits that are due to men and only God and his holy angels are able to stop them.
Paul is the one by whom the Holy Spirit revealed the enemies who were in front and their nature. Many thought that their enemies, and their adversaries, were men of flesh and blood and spent their time fighting against their neighbor. But Paul reveals that there are powers, dominations, dark world leaders and evil spirits in the sky who use tricks and strategies to fight against men and the will of God in their lives.
So there is a fight going on in the world, a fight that men do not see but that affect the existence of all men. Whether people believe in it or not, whether they realize it or not it affects their lives. They found various scientific and medical terms to name things that are of spiritual origin. So many run from doctor to doctor, from hospital to hospital, from witch doctor to the wicked for the purpose of solving problems whose solution is found only in one man, Jesus Christ. The only man who triumphed over the devil and took away from him all power and dominion. It is therefore important to mention that Jesus is in the camp of those who have been sanctified and justified by faith. He is on the side of the righteous, He and all his angels.
Paul reveals that the weapons used by the righteous are not carnal, they are not physical weapons, like rifles, tanks, grenades, or bombs, or knives. They are not physical instruments like hands, feet or hands shots or head shots. But weapons that are spiritual and powerful by virtue of God. These are legal weapons before God on the basis of which victory is manifested for the saints.
